Gem-finding scrimshaw detail.png

The gem-finding scrimshaw is an item that can be made with the Fletching skill at level 90 once all 4 scroll pieces of Gem Finding have been retrieved from the Player-owned port, requiring 2 Ancient bones.

The scrimshaw can be activated on and off for a total of 3 hours after which it degrades to dust.

The only requirement is level 80 mining. When activated, it increases the chance of finding a geode while mining by 2%.
